President Donald Trump is calling for an end to “chain migration” along with tighter legal immigration control, but what exactly does that term mean? The misconception is that any immigrant can bring as many family members as they would like when they come to the United States. In actuality, the process is much lengthier, in some cases taking up to 23 years, and is limited to certain family members. Our reporter, Camille Stuyvesant spoke with immigration attorney Sylvia Ontaneda-Bernales to break down 'chain migration.'

The Reno Police Department is changing the way it is responding to victims. Our reporter Stephanie Serrano got a firsthand look at some of the differences.

Within the last year, the city invested close to $100,000 to remodel the front desk of the Reno Police Department. This may sound like a cosmetic adjustment, but historically, people would make their reports through a plexiglass window in front of whoever was in the lobby, no matter the case.
